Bryant Park Summer Movie with Marilyn Monroe

All summer long I have been meaning to get out and see one of the outdoor summer movies that have been taking place since June. Despite heat and exhaustion on Monday night, I made sure to attend the HBO Summer Film Festival in Bryant Park, showing the Marilyn Monroe movie 'Gentlemen Prefer Blondes.'

I'd never seen a Marilyn Monroe movie before, and I didn't understand the movie too well. I was there mainly for the experience though, and to have fun watching an outdoor movie with a thousand or so other people who were also attending!

  1. Gentlemen Prefer Blonds. I love Marilyn Monroe. So what did you think of the movie? I know the experience at the outdoor NYC movies is fun in itself, but getting to a classic! What a treat!

  2. I love classic movies in the park! Sadly, I don't get to watch them in Bryant Park. :-(
